A loan of $875 helped to buy winter tires and make regular repairs to his car engine.


Ivan's story

Ivan is divorced. He lives in Ivano-Frankivsk and is involved in passenger transportation within Ukraine. Ivan has his own car, VAZ 21114, made in 2006. He started proving transportation services seven years ago. Previously, he sold vegetables wholesale and retail at a food market and then decided to change his speciality. Since then, his income rose and currently amounts to 6 000 hryvnia. Ivan plans to use the 7 000 hryvnia Kiva loan to buy winter tires and make regular repairs to his car engine. This business is Ivan's primary source of income. One of the goals that Ivan sets for himself is to purchase a newer car. In the future, Ivan plans to continue working in this field because for now he does not see other, more interesting enterprises.
